RHYL PETTTf SESSIONS. I Before Dr Girdlestone (in the chair\ Messrs S K Muspratt, J Foulkes, R C Enyon, W H Coward, and E P Jones. D. and D." Robert Jones, labourer, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly on the 3rd August. He pleaded guilty.—P.C. Tromans said he saw Jones about 10-30 on the date in question. He was very drunk. Witness went up and told him to get off home, but defendant at tirst refused. Witness was attracted just after by a woman screaming, and on going to see what was the matter, found Jones pulling a woman about. He was using very bad language, and as he was disorderly, witness had to take him into custody.—Fined 5s and 7s 6d costs, or in default 14 days'. A Caution to Others. The Rhyl Mineral Water Company, Ltd., claimed 92 2s from David Jones for unlaw- fully quitting their services without giving proper notice.—Mr F J Gamlin appeared for the company, and said defendant was engaged as a carter by the company. The agreements were that a week's notice should be given on either side. Jones left their employ in the busiest part of the season without giving a moment's notice. This put the company about a good deal, and the directors wished to make an example of this man.—Jones said he was willing to pay the money, providing the magistrates gave him time.—Mr Gamlin We are willing to accept 10s. a month.—The Chairman Very well, then, you will have to pay the money in instalments of 10s a month. —Jones Thank you, gentlemen. A Case Dismissed. Emily Samuels, lodging-house keeper, Kintnel Street, Rhyl, was charged by Annie Hughes, domestic servant, in the employ of Mrs Rosenberg, of the same street, with an assault on the 10th August. Mr F Llewellyn Jones appeared for the complainant, and Mr F J Gamlin for defendant. -Annie Hughes said she was employed as a servant at 41 Kinmel Street. On the day in question she went out into the town, and returned home with a friend. This was in the afternoon. They both stood in front of the house talking, when Mrs Samuels came out of her own house, which is next door, and said Go on, you dirty Defendant then struck her with an umbrella on the back. —Cross-examined Mrs Samuels had been on to her ever since she came to work at Mrs Rosenberg's, bub she could not say what it was for. Witness admitted having called at Mrs Samuels once, when she said Go and wash the paint off your face (laughter). Witness paid for the summons, and not her mistress. Her mistress was a sister of Mrs Samuels' husband.—Polly Parry said she lived opposite to the previous witness. Witness was talking to the complainant in the street, between eight and nine o'clock in the evening, when Mrs Samuels came up, used a nasty expression, and struck Hughes on the back with her umbrella. --By Mr Gamlin You say the assault took place between eight and nine in the evening. Are you quite sure.—Polly Yes, sir, I am sure it was.—Mr Gamlin That settles it then.—Addressing the Bench, Mr Gamlin said L did not appear necessary to call his witnesses, as the two witnesses for the prosecution both told absolutely different tales. The girl Hughes said the assault took place in the afternoon, and the next witness (Polly Parry) said it was between eight and nine in the evening. I will call the defendant if the magistrates wish me to, but it appears un- necessary.—The Chairman We shall dismiss the case, each party to pay their own costs. An Unhappy Married Couple. Robert Lewis Vaughan, of 125 Wellington Road, Rhyl, was. summoned by his wife, Margaret Vaughan, for using threats on the 19th August. -Complainant said her husband threatened to do for her. She was afraid of him, and therefore she sought protection.— Defendant said he was under the doctor.—The Chairman Have you a certificate. -Defen- dant Yes, sir, from Dr Lloyd.-The Bench bound him over in the sum of £5 to keep the peace for six months. Self Saorifioe. Mary Hunt and Margaret Lynch are mother and daughter, living at Vale Road, Rhyl. Both apparently have a weakness for being too fond of the beer, and both possess a black list of previous convictions. Margaret, the daughter, is especially familiar with the police court. On the 17th of August both were found by P.C. Tromans in a very drunken and disorderly state, with the result that they faced the magistrates once again to answer for their conduct.—Both pleaded guilty.—P.C. Tromans said he saw the two women just before eleven o'clock on the Saturday night. They were very drunk, and were shouting out the most foul language. They both had been very bad of late.—Mary Hunt was fined 5s and 7s 6d costs, and Margaret 10s and 7s 6d costs. -Marcaret said she should not pay she would go to prison first. But I will pay my mother's fine.-She thereupon paid the 12s 6d for her mother, and was taken to the cells herself. Another Absentee Vanman.—Was it Illness or the Drink? The Rhyl Mineral Water Company charged Hugh Burns, a vanman, from whom they claimed £ o, with absenting himself from their employ. Mr Gamlin appeared for the Company, and Mr J Lloyd for Burns. Mr Gamlin said Burns was employed by the Company at a standing wage of 16s a week with a certain commission, which brought his wages up to about f.1 Is a week. On the 20th August defendant was sent out about 10 in the morning with a pair of horses and a van to deliver mineral waters in the town to customers. He returned about 2.30 in the afternoon in a drunken condition. Defendant went to dinner and never returned that day. This put the Company about a good deal, as it was at a very busy time of the year, and someone else had to do his work. Defendant never came on the following day, and also kept the delivery book and the money he received, so that the daily accounts could not be made up. Defendant's explanation was that he was suffering from illness, but he (Mr Gamlin) would call evidence to show that the man was drunk and not fit to be in charge of horses. He had broken his contract by absenting himself, and the Company had lost 23 through his conduct. Frank Unsworth said he was managing director of the Company. Burns' wages were ltfs a week, and id commission on all boxes of mineral waters returned, which made a total wage of about a guinea a week. It was always the rule for them to give and take a week's notice from their servants. Witness detailed the fact that Burns went ont in the morning and returned at 2.30 in the afternoon in a drunken condition. Witness had to help a boy to take the horses out in consequence of defendant's condition. Burns went home to dinner and never returned. This was a great annoyance and loss to the Company, as 40 dozen of stuff had been ordered for the Volunteers in camp, which could not bo sent until late in the evening. By Mr Lloyd How is it that you claim JE3 damages n Mr Unsworth: Loss in trade cau.ed by defendant being absent. Mr Lloyd What is the profit on 40 dozen of mineral waters ? Witness I can't tell. Mr Gamlin I don't think that is a fair question. Mr Lloyd Yes it is; you are claiming for £ 3, and I want to know how you make it out. Come Mr Unsworth, you are managing director, and surely you know what profit you make. Mr Unsworth I should say the gross profits are 6d a dozen that was a Is a case of two dozen bottles. Mr Lloyd But you put somebody else on to do Burns' work when he went home ?

COLWYN BAY. HUSBAND AND WIFE.-Before the Colwyn Bay magistrates on Saturday, Dr. Stewart Kirk- patrick, formerly medical officer of Flint, who since last November has been acting as a surgeon in the British army in South Africa, whence he recently returned, summoned his wife, Mrs Lily4Eagenie Kirkpatrick, of West Promenade, Colwyn Bay, for assault, and on a counter-sum- mons Mrs Kirkpatrick charged her husband with a similar offence. Mr d'Arcy, barrister, of Liver- pool, appeared for the husband, and Mr James Amphlett for the wife. The magistrates bound both husband and wife over to keep the peace in their own recognisances of JE30 each. They in- timated that on the summonses before them they could take no action in regard to questions of separation and maintenance.

Witness Yes, I did, but we still were a man short. Mr Lloyd You say the man was drunk 1 Witness: Yes, he was. Mr Lloyd Well did you expect him to return to work in a drunken state ? Witness No, I did not. Mr Lloyd Is it a fact that Burns com- plained previously to this of being unwell, and you advised him to go to a doctor ? Witness Yes, perhaps I did, but it was before this date. Mr Lloyd Is Burns a good workman, and has he given you every satisfaction previous to this 'i Witness Yes, he is a fair workman. Mr Lloyd Well don't you think it would have been better for you to have seen the man before going co seek advice from Mr Gamlin ? Mr Unsworth No, Mr Gamlin is one of our directors. Mr Lloyd And a very good director too, I should think (laughter.) If you had seen the man first you would have been able to settle the matter. Witness I went to Mr Gamlin first, because two heads are better than one. Mr Lloyd Yes, even if they are only sheep's heads (loud laughter.) A youth named Hughes was called, and said he was in company with Burns on the date in question delivering "stuff" round the town. They got back about 2.30. By Mr Gamlin What condition was Burns in ? Witness He was nearly drunk. Mr Gamlin What do you mean by nearly drunk." Was his face as red as mine ? (loud laughter.) Witness (laughing) Yes, sir. Mr Gamlin Where did he deliver the mineral waters ? Witness Round the town to the public houses. Mr Garalin: Did you see him have any drink ? Witness: No, I simply helped him in with the stuff. Mr Lloyd submitted that the Company had no claim on his client. They had certainly not proved their claim, The Managing Director had been put into the box, but as far as he (Mr Lloyd) could see Mr Unsworth did not appear to know much about the Company's business, because he could not tell the actual profit they got on the mineral waters, nor could he say how many botdes they sold in a day. The n lanager had dis- missed Burns, which he subno itted he had no right to do. His client denial being drunk on the day in question. He was very ill, and had been ill for some time, through getting wet through while working for the Company at Abergele. Burns wanted to go back and work as soon as he was better, and was willing to resume work even no, but he was refused, and he had. been out of work ever since. When the man went home Ihe went to sleep, and cam out again about tea time and saw the Company's cart being driven by a man named Pickering. After seeing this Burns went home again, went jo bed, and never came out until late in the following day. He was not fit to work. Concluding, Mr Lloyd said Mr Unsworth's conduct in the matter was not altogether fair. Piurns, in corroborating* said he had been ill' for a long time. While out for the Company he had caught two colds on. the top of one another. His was heavy work, and he was not fit to do it in such a weak state. He denied being drunk on the day in question. He only had two glasses of beer all the time. He had no intention of leaving his work, and was willing to go back. A witness named Picbering in the employ of the Company, said Bourns had frequently complained of being unwell. Elizabeth. Wynne said. Burns lodged with her. On the date in question she saw him about 6 in the evening. He was not drunk then, and did not appear as if he had been. He had been unwell for some time. On the following day he was in bed, and never came out until late. The Bench said they considered the case had been, proved, and Burns would have to pay 21 3s costs and £1 2s damages, making J:2 5s in all. As defendant was out of work an order for payment at the -rate of 10s a month was made. The Cruelty inspector on the Warpath. Inspector Pengelly, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, had quite a field day amongst the donkey drivers and other animal proprietors: in the town last week, with the result that no t less than six cases of alleged cruelty were heatTd by the magistrates. In the first case Hugh Jones, 19 years of age, of Vale Road, Rhyl, pleaded not guilty to cruelly ill-treating an ase. The Inspector said he saw Jones "prodding" the animal about the tender parts in order to make it run. Witness examined the animal and found it very tender to the touch. Defen- dant had been convicted on two previous occasions for cruelty. He was fined 10s and 8s costs. David Jones, also of Vale Road, was charged with workina- a horse in an unfit condition. He did no zlppear. -The Inspector said he saw an aged roan mare carting sand on the East Parade. It had a large sore on its back. The defendant told him that he had spoken to his master about it, who ordered him to work it.-William Jones, the owner, was also summoned, but did not appear.-Both defendants were ordered to pay 18s in each case. Wflliam Jones, a. 'bus driver, of 16, Queen's Qourt, was charged with working a horse in an unfit state on the 20th inst; and James Knight, Mill Bank, was also charged with causing the same to be worked. Both pleaded not guilty. —The Inspector said he went to the Station Yard and saw a grey horse attached to a 'bus. Witness examined it and found a large sore on the chest. The collar was rub'bing it, and matter and blood was to be seei i. It was much inflamed. There was also a w ound on the leg.. —Knight said he told his man to get the collar altered, so as to ease the sore. on the chest. -J ones was ordered to pay 5s fine and costs, a; ad Knight 10s fine and cos ts. William Henry ".Jones, hawker, of Vale Road, was charged: with cruelty to a mule. H pleaded guilty,, .and was fined 7s 6d and coets. The Inspecioir said the mule had a WlQund on its back several inches long, which tras very much i uflai ued. There was a pad onder the Raddle. which was covered with blood. John Williams, of 16, Greenfield Place, was charged with cruelty to a horse on August 20th. He pleaded guilty.—The Inspector said it was a very bad case. The bay horse in question had very sore shoulders. It was attached to a mineral-water cart belonging to Mr Clarke, who, however, knew nothing of the horse's condition.—Fined 10s and costs. Family Animosity. Mary Cassidy, a domestic servant in the employ of Mr Moses Samuels, of 40, Kinmel Street, charged Mrs Esther Rosenburg, who lives next door, with assaulting her. Mr Gamlin appeared for the girl Cassidy, and Mr Llewelyn Jones was for Mrs Rosenburg. Mr Gamlin, in his opening remarks, charac- terised the assault as dirty and disgusting." Mary Cassidy said she was an Irish girl, and on Saturday night she was returning from town with an armful of ginger beer bottles. It would be about 11.15. As she passed defen- dant's house Mrs Rosenburg, who was standing outside her house, spat in her face and said, 4'Take that you dirty Irish Witness did not know why Mrs Rosenburg did it, as she had never given her cause to do anything of the sort. Witness was quite certain it was Mrs Rosenburg, as the lamps were alight and she could see her plainly. Mr Samuels said he was standing outside his house and witnessed the assault. When the girl went into the house the salava was still on her face, as the girl had both hands full and could not wipe it off. Mr Llewelyn Jones said his instructions were a perfect denial to the whole of the evidence given by the previous witnesses. He would call witnesses to prove that Mrs Rosenburg was never in the street at that time of night. There was a good deal of ill-feeling between the parties, and the case had only been brought up for spite. Mrs Rosenburg said that on the day in question she did not leave her laundry until 11 at night. She went in back way, and never came out again. She did not see the girl. By Mr Gamlin Do you mean to infer that the girl Cassidy is telling lies and committing perj ury ? Witness Yes, she is. Mr Gamlin Mr Samuels is your brother, isn't he and you followed him to Rhyl from Dublin, didn't you ? Witness No, I didn't exactly. His own wife got me the house in Kinmel Street. Her brother was always "getting at" her. She (defendant) did not stand in her door or in the street that night at all. Jane Williams said she was employed at the laundry. On the evening in question both her and Mrs Rosenbury left off work at 11 o'clock. Mrs Rosenburg went in back way to her house. Annie Hughes, servant with the defendant, said her mistress came in back way just after 11 o'clock. She did not go out again. The magistrates considered the case proved, and ordered Mrs Rosenburg to pay a fine of £1 and 21 costs. Defendant Well I am innocent. It is all a made-up case. Cheap Jewellery Vendor Fined. Morris Shechter is a foreigner, and is a well-known figure in Rhyl, standing as he does at the top of High Street selling articles of cheap tawdry jewellery. On Saturday last P.C Tale saw him hawking these goods, and curious to know if the man had a certificate, stopped him. Morris produced a certificate, which proved to be an old one in fact it was issued in the Isle of Man, and therefore had no force in England.—The Inspector said these sort of men were a nuisance in a town. They frequently got a crowd round them and caused an obstruction. Morris, who appeared surprised, was fined Is anrl 8s costs.
